Automated since 1978, it is reportedly visited by 10,000 people each year in spite of its remoteness.

 

Whilst the lighthouse itself is operated and maintained by the Northern Lighthouse Board, the property offered consists of 1,506 square foot of renovated accommodation that includes a ground floor 2-bedroom flat, a first floor 2-bedroom flat and a bothy. Car parking is provided within a walled area and all three units are currently operated as holiday lets.

  1. If that heap of junk can save lives with its light I’m Kylie Minogue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knock it down!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A total dump in the middle of hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks like a weird place to live ——- only suitable for sheep and those into them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. As a property professional I would find it difficult to do the viewings. Also, the absence of wine bars and local fine dining would not endear it to my super, super rich clients.

  3. As a property professional, I must say this is a hard one to assess. As no accounts for the holiday business are supplied, it is hard to guesstimate what revenue could be raised or if the venture is even worthwhile. Turning it into a single house might seem nice, but would you want the gawping 10,000 tourists a year lingering in your yard? I think not.

      You seem to be bereft of common sense.
      If 10,000 punters come to view annually then the possibilities of making a commercial success of the place are blatantly obvious….except, of course, to our resident ‘property professional’!
